YOUNG Morecambe forward Dan Parkinson is set to join Blue Square Bet North side Colwyn Bay on a month’s loan.

The 19-year-old will link up with former Shrimps striker Jon Newby who is the manager of the Seagulls.

Parkinson has been a regular in the reserves this season and Shrimps boss Jim Bentley believes the youngster will benefit from more first-team experience.

Bentley said: “Dan has done really well in the reserves this season and this will be a good thing for him and I’m sure it will help him develop his game.”
